Design classics: Bauhaus light
The Wagenfeld lamp is one of the most famous lamps of the Bauhaus era. The WG27 variant of the famous Wagenfeld lamp was designed in 1925 by Wilhelm Wagenfeld (1900-1990). In contrast to the original version, the WG27 has a nickel plated metal tube instead of a glass tube and a tapering, coated plastic shade instead of a glass dome. The base made of glass is the same for both models.
Atypical form of the Wagenfeld light
The W-lamp by Wilhelm Wagenfeld is available in numerous versions. The WG27 lamp has an unusual pointy plastic lamp shade, which gives a special look of the lamp.
